well when i am THIN i can walk into a clothing/boutique and sales people SMILE, and walk over hastily 'and ask if they can 'show me something' 'and add 'if you need anything at all -
when i am FAT - i can walk into a clothing/boutique and sales people have that definite 'OH NO NOT HER IN HERE!!" look, turn in another direction, and either wait for me to actually go up to them and ask, or wait hoping i walk out of the store quickly.
also this happened to me to - i was heavy but was looking for something for my daughter, and when i told the young 'TWINKIE' that i was looking for my daughter - the utter look of 'YEAH SURE RIGHT!!" ON HER FACE was so predictable. = sad to say!! BB

myself for sure, but I have had a co-worker recently tell me I needed to lose weight. I know my back issue isn't helped by my weight, but I also know I can barely exercise with this back issue.

I admit I'm probably my own worst judge. My husband tells me I'm too hard on myself in almost every area of my life!

However, I had more than one doctor that told me, ~Your joint pain is due to your weight. Just lose 20 (or 50) pounds and you'll have less pain.~

It was my Orthopedist who finally understood. ~You can't lose weight because you can't exercise with a knee in that kind of shape.~ He replaced my right knee in October 2011 and I'm finally Able to Move!!

Definitely me (outside of the little boy one day at a doctor's office who said to his mother, "He sure is fat.") I'm always imagining that people must be disgusted with how big I am. Or was...not quite as much now.

Myself. I have actually slowed down on making fun of myself, though.
